The Late Pleistocene is an unofficial sub-epoch in the international geologic timescale in chronostratigraphy, also known as Upper Pleistocene from a stratigraphic perspective.

It is intended to be the third division of the Pleistocene Epoch within the ongoing Quaternary Period. It is currently estimated to span the time between c.and c. 11, years ago. T1 - Archeology and late quaternary environments of the southern high plains.

Profound reorganization of biotic communities resulted, with a pattern of diverse patchy environments being replaced by a pattern of zonal communities–from "plaids" to "stripes," according to Guthrie.

The purpose of this study is to reconstruct the geologic history of a sinkhole collapse basin that formed during late Pleistocene time in Meade County, Kansas; to determine the nature of the vertebrate faunas that lived in and around this basin during Illinoian glacial, Sangamon interglacial, and Wisconsin glacial times; and to reconstruct, on the basis of the fossils, some of the local.

Below is the uncorrected machine-read text. Paleoindians first arrived in Texas more than eleven thousand years ago, although relatively few sites of such early peoples have been discovered. Texas has a substantial post-Paleoindian record, however, and there are more than fifty thousand prehistoric archaeological sites identified across the state.

This comprehensive volume explores in detail the varied experience of native peoples who. In the time they dominated the southern High Plains, Folsom hunters and their several offshoots concentrated their economies on the remnant herds of Pleistocene bison, increasingly on a late subspecies, Bison antiquus occidentalis.

But by 8, years ago the huge Pleistocene bison were : Dan Flores. The book presents an up-to-date, detailed overview of the Quaternary glaciations all over the world, not only with regard to stratigraphy but also with regard to major glacial landforms and the extent of the respective ice sheets.

The locations of key sites are included. The information is presented in digital, uniformly prepared maps which can be used in a Geographical Information System (GIS.

In order to provide better age constraints, a new technique to date volcanogenic zircons preserved in paleosols was utilized.

A concordia age of ± Ma was obtained but appears to represent detrital populations. Evidence of late-Pleistocene alluviation occurs in the form of distinct valley fills beneath two terrace surfaces (T-1 and T-2).

Pleistocene Environments. Until late in the Pleistocene, fine chronologic control is the exception (and rather crude even in later Pleistocene times). Any faunas in the early and mid Pleistocene (and to considerable degree in the late Pleistocene) may be separated by expanses of time long enough to create confusion between different spans.

Whatever the entry date may be, late Pleistocene. The timing of human entrance into North America has been a topic of debate that dates back to the late 19th century. Central to the modern discussion is not whether late Pleistocene-age populations were present on the continent, but the timing of their arrival.

Key to the debate is the age of tools—bone rods, large prismatic stone blades, and bifacially chipped and fluted stone weapon tips Cited by: 1. Correlating wind and water modified soil-landscape changes to major drought intervals during the late Pleistocene and Holocene using optically stimulated luminescent and radiocarbon ages from fragile soil environments is critical to understanding past environmental change and for proper land management decisions.

Recent improvements in Optically Stimulated Luminescence (OSL) provide an. drill cores and outcrops provide evidence of Late Pleistocene dune activity at sites distributed across the central Great Plains. In addition, Late Pleistocene eolian sands deposited at 20–25 ka are interbedded with loess south of the Sand Hills.

Various lines of evidence support conflicting interpretations of the timing, abruptness, and nature of climate change in the Great Plains during the Pleistocene-Holocene transition. Loess deposits and paleosols on both the central and northern Great Plains provide a valuable record that can help address these issues.
